AFCON 2019 Q: Cameroon Train in Nairobi Ahead of Comoros Duel

Indomitable Lions are in Nairobi for a four-day training camp ahead of their 2019 AFCON qualifiers game.

The Indomitable Lions are in Nairobi for a four-day training camp ahead of their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) second round qualifier against Comoros on September 10 in Moroni.

Only 14 players out of 23 took part in the session as more are expected to jet in the East African nation in the course of the day.

The evening session, which was under the close supervision of recently appointed coach Clarence Seedorf, involved traditional warm-ups, ball works, and tactical drills which suggested that the former Dutch international is already practicing strategy for the match.

Villarreal’s Karl Toko Ekambi was the star man in training that was held at the Kasarani Stadium which is located 15 kilometers from the Nairobi city center.

His willingness to hit long range shots impressed Seedorf who was also visibly pleased with the contributions of Pierre Kunde Malong and Allan Nyom during the session.

However, the good news during the session has to be the form of Stephane Bahoken, despite not having an impressive showing with his club, Angers, showed his true mettle in today’s session.

Cameroon, who are the AFCON defending champions, won their first group match at home against Morocco by a solitary goal in a match that was played in June last year.

In the other fixture of the group, their weekend opponents Comoros lost by the same margin to Malawi.

Cameroon, who are the next year’s AFCON hosts, automatically qualifiy for the tournament and only use the games for preparation purposes.

The Indomitable Lions will be jetting off on Thursday to Moroni for the match via a two hour flight.
